We report the successful way to improve oil and gas production using the results of the seismicity induced in conventional reservoirs by hydraulic stimulation, combined with well logs and seismic attributes. This allowed us to change the way of thinking the drainage radius in vertical wells to a distance that depends on the geometry of the hydraulic fractures. This, first lets us drill infill wells in Valle Hermoso area in Cerro Dragón field of Golfo San Jorge basin, Argentina. Secondly, we assess the viability of such a method in the context of Cerro Dragón. This work is the first of its kind published in the basin. Third, is to apply this new criterion in other areas in Cerro Dragon in the future. Outcomes of the monitoring have helped redefine the treatments therefore leading to improved completion design and infill wells spacing. This work show results of 3 new infill wells drilled against this new standard of spacing according to the behavior of length, height and direction of the fractures.
